    Nagasandra to Madavara Green Line extension to be opened in July

    This extension includes three elevated stations beyond Nagasandra

    Project faced many hurdles owing to pandemic and NICE Road issues

The Green Line extension of the Metro, spanning 3.3 km from Nagasandra to Madavara, that faced significant delays is now expected to be opened in July.

The section encountered more challenges compared to other lines, with a cost of Rs 298 crore. The extension includes three elevated stations beyond Nagasandra: Manjunath Nagar, Chikkabidarakallu (formerly Jindal Nagar), and Madavara (BIEC). The track laying process is anticipated to take 2.5 months, and the line is scheduled to become fully operational by July.

The project faced hurdles, particularly in the stretch between Chikkabirarakallu and Madavara. Residents of Anchepalya village demanded a Metro station in this area, leading to protests and disruptions to the contractor’s work. After reaching a compromise, the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) constructed roads within the village and connected them to the Metro stations. This issue, coupled with pandemic-related challenges and problems related to the NICE Road, contributed to months of delays in the project’s completion.

The upcoming stages involve trial runs of trains and inspection by the Commissioner of Metro Rail Safety.

Despite the setbacks, the impending opening of this Green Line extension signifies a crucial milestone in expanding Bengaluru’s metro network, enhancing connectivity, and addressing the transportation needs of the growing city.
